My Bio

I'm a long-time writer of fanfiction of all types, and recently have been re-inspired in writing new pieces. I'm in DESPERATE need of beta readers (check out this post if you don't know what that is: so if you want to be one, drop me a line. :wave:

I love real-life costuming, though circumstances have made that less possible lately. As such, I love designing outfits both for real cosplay and for the characters I write about. I have no actual artistic skill, however, so I come here to be inspired.

I have gotten into creating textures for hairstyles and furniture on IMVU 3D chat (like SecondLife, but with prettier avatars)and I have an extensive catalog of items there ( and most of those newer catalog pages can be seen in my DA gallery since Photobucket doesn't want people storing images there anymore.

0 min read So, I've been writing some Thrawn fanfic that takes place within the Ascendancy and needed some mood music in the background. But the Star Wars tracks were... well they just weren't cutting it. They are too evocative of a galaxy where Thrawn did not exist. The Mando soundtrack is all great and so very very very different from the SW music I grew up with, but it screams Mando because I've watched the show so many times and that flute just makes me think "helmeted warrior clans" now. And sure, I tried the hour-long loop of Thrawn's theme, but really, there is only so much pipe organ I can take. And then it hit me how wrong pipe organ is for Thrawn. I realize they used it to set him apart, to make him seem more alien because pipe organ wasn't something that had been used in the GFFA before. But's just too...European. It's too Dracula and Phantom of the Opera. And neither of those character types fits

I am STILL looking/begging for beta readers if anyone is interested. It would be for Star Wars/Thrawn fanfic.

I'm looking for beta readers for my fanfiction stories. What is a beta reader, you may ask? Beta readers are non-professionals (i.e., unpaid) who read a manuscript or chapters of a story prior to publishing, or in this case, posting it online. W

Thanks for the fave and may the force be with you.

And with you. :)

Amazing Gallery you have (>^.^<)

Well, tyvm for that! I truly appreciate it. I don't consider myself much of an actual artist except when it comes to fiction. My real art is the arrangement of words. But I like to use the doll makers online to <b>try</b> to realize some of the scenes in my head in a more physical form.

Happy Birthday! Have your cake and eat it too
